    Some thermostats are too complex...this one does the job and is easy to install and use. Does everything you need for a 2 stage air conditioner.

    • VisionPro Programmable, 1H/1C, Touchscreen Thermostat

      Q:

      Someone other than myself installed this while my wife and I were away for several months. Everything works well except for one issue I haven't been able to fix. Even though I have the fan set on "Auto" it keeps on running, 24 hrs. a day every day, even when I program it to stop! This is getting costly not to mention that the HVAC is now almost 15 years old and I'm concerned the fan motor will fail sooner than expected.

        Check the wiring. It sounds like the fan connection is tied to the power
        lead. Go look at the wiring at the furnace and compare that wiring to that
        at the thermostat. I'm sure there is a wiring error. Look at the wiring
        instruction, it includes the standard color codes for each lead . . . that
        may help you sort it out.

        A:

        A defect is always possible but, much more likely there is either a wire crossed or bridged at the connections in the thermostat or at the HVAC unit.
        Damaged wires, such as from a screw or nail, creating a connection (short) where there shouldn't be one.
        Depending on if its the heat or AC mode that won't shut off, check those terminals carefully and if they're all clean, no tail touching another screw, try reversing those two wires for the heat/AC.
        And just in case you don't know, this T-stat has a 'circ" for circulate mode that will run just the fan for X minutes/hr. Be sure that isn't turned on at the touch screen.
        Good luck.

        A:

        I learned through trial and error that ‘auto’ for the fan means that the fan is following whatever is programmed. If you’re using the 2 event or 4 event schedulers, check the fan’s programmed status in each schedule segment. A test for this is to put the stat in ‘hold’ mode, and cycle the fan through its settings. If it’s status changes, it’s a programming issue. If it doesn’t, there is also a chance the stat was wired incorrectly.

        This thermostat does not have wifi capacity. (At least my Vision PRO 8000, 1 Heat / 1 Cool doesn't have it.)
        It has three AAA batteries that can power it  for more than a year;  it also has a single button wafer cell back-up to these AAA batteries, which keeps the thermostat  energized when the AAA batteries are changed.
        It also runs off the 24V AC supply from the cooling system.  There is a jumper connecting the RC and R pins on the plate that mounts on the wall;  This jumper must be in place if yo u do not have air conditioning in order to power the thermostat from the 24 AC supply from the heating unit.

        A:

        You can use multiple sensors with the Vison Pro, but you need to use
        square numbers of thermostats due to Ohm's law. The manual describes
        this idea, but you would need to use four sensors (two in each
        apartment) for the application you describe. This thermostat's on-board
        sensor is disabled when it is used with remote indoor sensors and it
        creates an average among any area that have sensors.

        A:

        No.  This 8000 series Honey well thermostat can not be controlled by two sensors; it has only one temperature measurement circui t controlling a heater switch and a cooler switch .
        It does have a place to connect a remote sensor.  You can program the thermostat to use the remote sensor to control the heater/cooler switches instead of the internal temperature sensor.   The remote sensor would usually be used to show the outside temperature on the thermostat display.
        I suggest that you just use two separate thermostats.  You need to put separate sensors in each of your two locations anyway; they might as well be thermostats.  Whole building heating/cooling/ventilation control systems are available which coordinate all the heating/cooling/ventilation operations in a building.  They are more complicated to set-up and are controlled from a central location.  They are more complicated than yo u need with no advantage.
        This 8000 series Honeywell  thermostat has a 15 minute time constant, meaning it takes about 15 minutes to respond to a temperature change.  If your heating system can heat the room/house is less than 15 minutes, the temperature will overshoot, resulting in a temperature oscillation.  I bought a bare glass enclosed Honeywell sensor (with a fast response) from Mouser, and connect it to the remote sensor terminal block.  Then I programmed the thermostat to use the remote sensor for controlling the heating .    I sh ould have bought a different model thermostat that wasn't so slow to respond to changes in temperature.  The Honeywell help line does not think the 15 minute response time is a problem.

        This is a single zone thermostat. You will need two thermostats, one for
        each heat pump. The remote temperature sensor only provides information; it
        doesn't control the heat/cool device.

        No the VisionPro touchscreen thermostat is not a wireless device. You will
        have to go to a wireless red-link thermostat to use that outdoor sensor.
        You can us a wired outdoor sensor with the VisonPro line though.
        If you can't pull a 2 conductor wire out from the thermostat out to the
        sensor, you can step up to any of the Red-Linked capable Honeywell stats.

        I doubt a wireless sensor would work. The temp sensor is uses a current
        loop, with the changing temperature changing the resistance and thus the
        current. A wireless sensor most likely transmits a digital signal.
        Interfacing the two would be a challenge.

        I am not sure how to answer this one.  It is basically just like any other thermostat, you say what temp you want it on and if you want auto fan (runs to required temp and then runs enough to keep it at that temp) or fan on (runs continuously).
        "Does the temperture go higher or lower then the temperture inside the house?"  I am sorry I don't know what this means.  If you put it on 68 it will cool the house to 68.  If you put it on 80 it will let the house either warm up to 80 (in the summer) and then maintain that temp or heat the house up to 80 in the winter.

        The easy way to get instant gratification is to use the arrows to the right of the "Present Setting" temperature on the right. Set the number to the desired temperature. 75 is a reasonably pleasant temperature to have.
        Of course, first you have to make sure that the thermostat is set for "Cool" on the left. Just tap on the rectangular box at the left, that says "Heat" "Off" or "Cool" until the "Cool" starts blinking. Then tap on "Done" on the tab at the bottom.
        To program for a more permanent solution, you will need to go through the instructions on the user manual.

        A:

        The speed of cooling is dependent on the efficiency of the cooling unit, and the insulation. The thermostat will shut off when the desired temperature is reached. Often, the cooling unit might shut off earlier, if it gets overloaded, even though the thermostat wants it to keep going.
        Another problem that might contribute to the cooling efficiency is if the vents that are controlled by the zoning unit, is malfunctioning. This can lead to cold air escaping to other zones by faulty electronics or mechanics.

      • VERIFIED BUYER

        A:

        The thermostat has nothing to do with the performance of the equipment. If it takes a long time to cool down, it is because the cooling equipment is not sized correctly. the thermostat is simply a sensor that responds to the changes in the controlled environment. Look to the equipment rather than the thermostat. Efficiency is also a function of the equipment operation and not the thermostat. Correctly sized equipment will operate automatically, when necessary. If sized too small it may operate continuously and not cool down the room. If sized too big, it may only operate a few minutes on each cycle before shutting off and waiting for the environment to warm up again. The best sizing will operate approximately 2/3 to 4/5 of the time during average conditions. The extra 20 to 30% is used when conditions are above average. Comfort and energy costs are the determining factor. If you can put up with warmer temperatures longer, you will save money but be less comfortable. If comfort only is the determining factor, set the thermostat for the comfort temperature and let it operate all the time. But, your energy bill will be higher. You will benefit from increased insulation to reduce cooling and heating load as well as allow smaller capacity equipment to be able to do the cooling or heating job at lower energy costs.

        There is no absolute yes or no. It depend on many factors within your
        building and AC/vent system as well the outside temperature. I'm commercial
        HVAC technician. And, in a church where I do servicing the system, it takes
        about two hours to cool down five degrees. More efficient way to run the
        system in early morning(the coolest part of the day) - it uses fresh
        outdoor air to cool down, not AC - then I do not have to run AC at all
        during a day. But that is true when nights cold enough(outdoor temperature
        become cooler than indoor). And that apply to commercial where a building
        normally occupied during the day, and where vent system(fresh outdoor
        supply/exhaust indoor blow out) exist. In residential where unfortunately
        the system functions differently that might be not the case. About
        efficiency you may try experiment by yourself. But normally, if you are out
        for hours and then coming home afternoon(evening), it will be more
        efficient to start your AC upon your arrival(better hour-two in advance if
        you have programmable thermostat), than to run AC unit all day long. Hope
        my info helps you a little. Good luck.

        Hello, first of all I am no expert on A/C.  I am just a guy who purchased this item.  That being said, here are my opinions of your questions.
        I live in AZ so it takes some time to cool down the house.  I am also on time of use so I let it get pretty hot during the more expensive time and then cool it down when prices are cheaper.  Two hours does seem like a long time but I don't think that sounds out of line.
        As for efficiency, I would say you have kind of answered that question based on your experience.  Either you let it run for a couple of hours to cool it down all at once or you let it keep a relative temp and kind of run as needed.  I asked your question to an A/C person last year and they said it makes no difference to the A/C Unit itself (you aren't hurting it by letting it sit for a while and then run hard for a couple of hours).
        I choose to let it get hot so I am not using energy during peak pricing hours.
        I hope this answer helps!
